Enrique Peña Custom DIESEL Jigged Bronze Titanium Frame-Lock Flipper (SOLD)
Enrique Peña has been making knives since 2006, He began his career strictly making traditional style folders. He was a protege of Bill Ruple. Now he has transitioned into the tactical knife arena, and done so in a big way, his knives are gaining a lot of traction and are becoming highly desirable to own and collect. His precise fit, finish, selection of materials, appearance and design, are what defines a custom handmade knife.

The blade exhibits excellent detent, rock solid lock-up, perfect blade centering, and an early lock-up with no lock-stick. Comes in a padded, zippered storage case.
